Continued slow progress

21 pages so far on Demon City Project X.

I will be so glad to be done with this setting. It’s not that I hate it – I’m just as fascinated by it as I was at the beginning – it’s just very difficult for me to write. It’s not the sort of thing one usually sees in Exalted. (In fact, it’s much closer to the World/Chronicles of Darkness.) I’m finally, over a month into this, getting a good handle on the characters and their motivations. I’m definitely looking forward to being able to show you all these characters – and then to moving on.

I can’t imagine finishing in less than two weeks, especially given how my tendons are stressed at work right now. In the meantime, I’ll be continuing to write half a page here and there.

Progress on X

My day job involves lots of computer use. I make online courses – hard to do that with a Sharpie. I only get so much computer time per day – eventually, my tendons complain and my eyes refuse to focus. Since work has been super-busy recently, I haven’t had much typing capability left when I got home. Often it’s been none. Today I got to sneak in an hour and a half when I got home, and made good use of it.

Demon City Project X (currently its official name) is finally moving forward. I wrote about 2 pages today. If I can even do half a page per day I’ll be happy; any progress is good progress.

One of the other things that’s been eating up my typing allotment is some major involvement in the Onyx Path Exalted forums. There have been a lot of threads there recently about making the forums more welcoming to newcomers, especially to women, and I’ve been a major advocate for that. I’m glad to see some of my efforts starting to pay off, as other people take up the banner and march forward with it when my hands fail.
